Project idea

Designing a master studio and dormitories for 6-8 students in the old unused Orangery for a short-term courses.

Project description

The main concept of the project is to divide the old and new structure by creating a new layer of structures which form something new, move or cut through the current environment. Thus there are two ortogonal systems used for creating the spaces.
There are three parts of the project.
1. - Orangery building where the studio will be together with a storage room.
2. - Dorms building will provide all the students need for living and relaxing.
3. - Public spaces (which are defined by the Orangery, Dorms, Promenade and areal wall) will be partly sheltered. Also some new paths will be set.
